Customer presentation, Eindhoven.
After Twan van den Broek (of Ciber) and I succesfully applied a great mix of agile software development processes and techniques, including Scrum, Smart, smart use cases, smart estimation in probably the first agile SAP SOA projects in the Netherlands, we’ve held several talks on the subject at conferences and seminars, including an agile conference, the SOA Symposium and the LAC.
For tomorrow one of Capgemini’s larger customers asked me to do a talk on the subjects for their traditional SAP community – including a number of Capgemini collaegues. So I’ve set up slide deck which contain more or less the same subjects as my talk at the Landelijk Architectuur Congres (LAC) last week.
Subjects tomorrow will include:
- Service oriented architecture
- Challenges in service orientation
- SAP is an island
- From waterfall to agile
- Why waterfall won’t work
- What does it mean to be agile?
- Mixing Smart and Scrum
- Agile requirements
- Mapping business processes
- Smart use cass
- Modeling services in smart use cases
- Estimating smart use cases
- Running agile SAP SOA projects
- Lessons learned
Next steps for Twan and me? We are starting to set up the document map for a book on the subject. The slides I’ve produced for tomorrow’s talk might very well be guiding the table of contents. First appointment: next week. To be continued…
